PARENTING PLAN
You must submit to the Court some form of written Parenting Plan addressing all of the issues which are relevant to the facts of your case. The written Parenting Plan must contain provisions for the allocation of parental responsibilities including decision-making and parenting time. You may use this form as a Parenting Plan to submit to the Court. This standard form does not include every possible issue that may be relevant to the facts of your case. A section entitled "Other Terms" is available for you to identify unique issues that you may have in your case. If you need more space than is provided, attach additional pages to the form. Any additional pages must include notarized signatures.

To promote agreement among parties where the children are involved, parties may jointly create a written Parenting Plan. If you do not enter into a joint written Parenting Plan, you must each file your own written Parenting Plan. Without an agreement, the Court must enter its own plan which may be a plan filed by one of the parties or may be entirely different. Whether the Court approves your plan or enters its own, the Parenting Plan will become a Court Order.

This is a: Full Joint Parenting Plan (we agree to everything and the plan is signed by both parties.) Partial Joint Parenting Plan (we agree to some things and the plan is signed by both parties.) Parenting Plan prepared by one party (no agreement). If this is a partial joint Parenting Plan or a Parenting Plan prepared by one party, please complete and file with the Court JDF 1129 - Pretrial Statement to identify issues that you have not agreed on. This is a required form if you have any issues that you cannot agree on. A hearing may be necessary to address the issues. The Petitioner is the child(ren)'s: Father Mother Other Party (state relationship to child(ren) _____________________________________ The Co-Petitioner/Respondent is the child(ren)'s: Father Mother Other Party (state relationship to child(ren)_____________________________________
